This company provides chimney cleaning, chimney repair, and tuck pointing services for residential customers. Chimney cleaning is an essential component of owning and operating a fireplace, as it prevents carbon monoxide from flooding the home when the fireplace is being operated, keeps creosote (a byproduct of burnt wood) from building up and catching fire, and allows the fireplace to run more efficiently and therefore reduce heating costs and better warm the home. This company also provides chimney repairs, which includes chimney relining, crown repair, and fireplace repair. The company also offers repair and replacement services for chimney caps and screens. Soot Yourself Chimney Services, Inc. also offers tuck pointing services for chimneys.
